Samsung launches Rose Pink color variant of the Galaxy S8+
Samsung announced the Galaxy S8+ along with the Galaxy S8 back in March this year. Both these smartphones come with 4 GB RAM, however, Samsung later announced the 6 GB RAM variant of the Galaxy S8+ as well, and now, this South Korean tech giant has announced a Rose Pink colored variant of the S8+.
Needless to say, the Rose Pink variant of the Galaxy S8+ looks the same as the regular variant. Also, there’s no difference in the hardware between the Rose Pink variant and the regular variant. The only difference between both these variants is cosmetic.
Like the regular variant, the Rose Pink variant of the Galaxy S8+ is powered by Exynos 8895 SoC which is paired with 4 GB RAM. It flaunts a 6.2-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display which is kept on by a 3500 mAh battery.
At the back is the 12 MP Dual Pixel camera which is flanked by LED flash and fingerprint scanner, and, on the front is an 8 MP camera. The S8+ comes with IP68 water and dust resistance and has 64 GB of storage on board. It boots up to Android 7.0 Nougat and also comes with features like Iris Scanner and Wireless Charging.
